Hey There Pumpkin! Fun with the Gather Together Bundle

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is well today! I’m definitely starting to feel the fall vibe, my inspiration for today’s card was a picture I saw of someone decorating the front of their house with all white pumpkins cascading down their staircase.

  • Card Base Whisper White Card Stock 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2′ scored at 4 1/4″,
  • Misty Moonlight Card Stock  5 1/4″″ x 4 1/8″
  • Whisper White Card Stock 5″ x 4″
  • Scraps Pieces of Whisper White card stock Label and Flower

Instructions:

Using your Whisper White card stock layer , Gray Granite ink, and the smallest Water Painter speckle your background picking up ink and I tap it off of my long scissors or your finger to create the speckled background.

Now on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Gray Granite ink stamping off one time, stamp several images of the large and smaller pumpkins from the Gathered Together stamp set.

Die cut your images using the Gathered Leaves Dies.

Using a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock I die cut the largest circle from the Tasteful Labels Dies

Stamp the sentiment “hey there pumpkin” in Gray Granite ink on to the center of the circle.

I placed some Tear & Tape on the back of the circle, attached a piece of the Gray Granite Shimmer Ribbon

Now attach your pumpkins in a cascading form down the right side and the bottom of your speckled Whisper White card stock which is placed in a horizontal position.

Using Dimensionals attach your sentiment

Glue your Whisper White Layer onto your Gray Granite Layer, then all your layers onto your card base.
